Black Turkey

Gary Rolin | Nov 19, 2001 10:42 PM

Someone sent me this story a while ago. Since I've read it, I've been curious about it.

It is an extremely invloved method for preparing a turkey called the "Black Turkey Recipe." The recipe itself was supposedly created by Morton Thompson a writer.

The method of cooking the turkey seems very nearly impossible. The only thing that might be more difficult than cooking the turkey this way might be giving birth to the turkey.

Has anyone ever tried to prepare this monstrosity? Or been to a party where it was served? Is it worth trying? I saw it featured on a Food TV show once, but I would like some other opinion if possible.

I am thinking about preparing it at Christmas, just want to know if it's worth the effort.

I have included the link to the recipe below.
